About: 2 dogs, 1 adorable cat, and of course a fish named Thor.

Glass paint is beautiful, but it's expensive! Many people do not know there's another alternative to the paint itself that costs down three dollars

    I haven't tried it yet, but I believe you can buy like a seal and clear spray. Some of it did flake off if I really picked at it, but it's pretty much okay

    I have done this using the clear gel glue, I sprayed a clear sealer over it and it prevented runoff. going to try it with the white glue, thanks ;)

    Great idea! Thanks for the tip. You should add a little more to this Instructable, show us a little more of what you can do with it.

    Maybe if you use some kind of a sealing spray it will stay permanent? I know there are sealing, waterproof spray for paint, maybe this would work?

    Wouldn't that flake off the glass or is there a way to cure it so it stays on? It looks awesome!
